On Memory or How Can I Doublethink?
The Story of Milk and Honey
Director: Basma Alsharif
Lebanon; 2016, 9’58’’; Arabic; Turkish subtitles
The Story of Milk and Honey is a short experimental video belonging to a larger project, which includes photographs, drawings and text, detailing an un-named individual’s failure to write a love story. Through voiceover narration that weaves together images, letters, and songs, a story of defeat transpires into a journey that explores how we collect and perceive information, understand facts, history, images, and sound and where the individual is to be found in the midst of the material.
